iPhone 7 and 7 Plus won’t be joined by an iPhone 7 Pro this fall

Apple’s next-generation iPhones will indeed be named the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, but they will not be accompanied by an iPhone 7 Pro, according to a new report citing “reliable sources.”

Japanese blog Macotakara, whose sources have been reliable in the past, confirms that this year’s iPhone’s will be labeled iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus — just as expected.

They also promise that the devices will bring “greatly improved” cameras, Apple’s A10 chip, and a capacitive home button that’s expected to be pressure-sensitive. The sources confirm Apple is killing off the headphone jack, and adding a new black color option.

And don’t worry about having to pay extra for an “iPhone 7 Pro” to get that exciting dual-lens camera. According to Macotakara, there won’t be one, so the camera will be packed into the 5.5-inch iPhone 7 Plus instead.

It’s impossible to confirm these claims ahead of Apple’s iPhone event, of course, but it has always seemed unlikely that an even more expensive iPhone 7 Pro would be coming this fall. We can’t imagine iPhone fans would be too happy about it, either.
